Hey guys, I think I need some advice from you to deal with a very rude neighbor!
Ok, so the story goes like this: This very rude white guy moved in a while ago and he has an old pickup truck, three weeks ago, he parked the truck right in front of my house and then never moved the car (it is still there now). and he actually lived a few houses from mine and there are lots of other street parking space next to his house.
since my house doesn't have a garage and my family has two cars, the way ...Read more
Just finished watching Robert Bresson's Pickpocket, a really nice film about the life of a pickpocket. As people know, Bresson's technique is interesting, especially with the way he treated his actors, which he called "models". check http://www.sensesofcinema.com/contents/directo...Read more

I am wondering if any of the writers or visual artists (film, videomaker or actor) feel they are not getting the kind of respect they should get in terms of finding jobs or negotiating a job deal?
i dun remember how many times i have heard writer or actor or videomaker saying they are underpaid, or sometimes getting deferred pay they never actually receive.. go to websites like craigslist and you'll see so many ridiculous writing/film/video job posts...
and not to mention my own experience worki...Read more

The Festival of Hungry Ghost just passed, i guess it is probably a bit late, but I still wanna ask you guys if you have any ghost stories to share? anything you have experienced yourself or you heard of?

So one night he (or his friends, i forgot) and some friends are driving near GG park, and then at the stop light, they see a car in front of them, at first they do...Read more
have been watching the olympics since day 1, everything looks great so far, the opening ceremony is phenomenal, and the sports are great. i support both chinese and us team, so it is good to see that both teams are doing fine and competing back to back...
if i must complain, it is probably the tv coverage here in sf.. we all know nbc got the exclusive broadcast right to the games, but they are showing everyting late. the ceremony was shown 12 hrs late, and for most of the events i saw so far (on the basic nbc channel), they are at least 30mi...Read more
